Aldi sizes up former Hawick mill site
Supermarket giant Aldi has submitted plans to build a new £5m store on a former mill site in the Borders.
It says 30 full-time jobs could be created with the Commercial Road development.
It expressed an interest in the former Wilton Mills site last year but there were access problems.
A separate application to demolish two remaining listed buildings has now been tabled to Scottish Borders Council to allow the project to proceed.
The firm has already carried out a consultation exercise in Hawick on the plans.
It found that 92% of visitors to the public exhibition were supportive of a new store being built.
